French Open Tennis 2010

The French Open is the 2nd tournament of the 2010 Tennis Grand Slam tour and even though Roger Federer is the #1 ranked player in men’s tennis, Rafael Nadal is the big favorite to win the men’s side of the French Open. Sisters Serena and Venus Williams are ranked #1 and #2 in the World but neither of them are favored to win too. What's the deal with the French Open???


Tennis Match Mystery

The French Open has a mysterious twist to the list of tennis champions. The best players don’t usually win the French Open because of the clay surface of the tennis court. The clay slows down the game so much that gives an advantage to different styles and techniques. The ball also bounces much higher on a clay court, so maybe it helps to be tall... or to be able to jump high... what is the secret?

Everyone knows Roger Federer is the best player in tennis… ever. But Roger had to win 13 grand slam championships before winning the French Open just last year. This year he has already won the Australian Open and he has set his sights on winning all 4 grand slam tournaments in the same year... the only thing he has never done in tennis. But his biggest challenge will be to beat Rafael Nadel in this French Open as Rafael has won it 4 times in the last 5 years.

Serena is dominating her sister Venus for most grand slam titles 11-6, but between the two, Serena has only won the French Open once and that was 8 years ago. In fact, that was the year they played in the final against each other. The big question is why can’t the Williams sisters do well in France?

Oops forgot about this! At Darlington Kevin Harvick wins after passing Dale Jr. With 2tg on a GWC. Johnson comes home in 3rd. Jeff Gordon keeps his points lead. Kenseth and Edwards are stalking him in the points. [-News-] Gene Haas has announced that he is planning on making a F1 team. None of his Stewart-haas drivers will be driving in it though. Subway recently is looking for sponsor in F1. This could become a deal. Lack of funding for the team of Swan Racing (Parker Kligerman and Cole Whitt) May cause it to shutdown. Team spokesman says that lack of funds has been an issue of lately but they plan to keep on going.
